Andrew Stevenson of the Nationals has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A, per the team. Stevenson can provide solid defense and baserunning, but those aren’t particular needs for a Washington team planning to start Lane Thomas and Victor Robles alongside superstar Juan Soto. Yadiel Hernandez and Gerardo Parra are the pure outfielders remaining in camp with a chance to win the fourth outfielder spot, while Ehire Adrianza is also capable of playing in the grass. As for Stevenson, he will have 48 hours to accept his assignment or elect free agency. Let’s check in on some other roster updates from around the game…
- The A’s have optioned southpaw Sam Selman to Triple-A, per the team, lowering the number of players in camp to 38. Selman appeared in each of the past three seasons with the Giants, but also made 18 appearances with the Angels after being acquired as part of the Tony Watson deal. Oakland later claimed Selman off waivers. He’ll continue to serve as bullpen depth in Oakland for the time being.
- The Royals announced a handful of minor league assignments today. Colten Brewer, Jose Cuas, Brad Peacock and Arodys Vizcaino; infielders Gabriel Cancel, Iván Castillo, Clay Dungan and Vinnie Pasquantino; and outfielders Dairon Blanco, Brewer Hicken and JaCoby Jones were all assigned to minor league camp.
Can you fix the spelling error of the word ‘Brewer Hicken’? His name is ‘Brewer Hicklen’ not ‘Hicken’. Please & thank you.
“‘Brewer Hicken’ and JaCoby Jones were all assigned to minor league camp”.
Brewer? Is that you?
If so, go to minor league camp, you can’t be on this board
Well, he is a detective, so he’s looking for the tiniest of details
So good point Pinkerton!
Yep it is
Yes God forbid someone misspell on a site like this. Glad we have a brain surgeon watching ober all of uz hicks

I hope the writer goes back in and adds three extra l’s to Brewer’s name and misspells countless other words. After the comment above I think that would make 99% of us who have witnessed that comment happy.
The “l” is silent.
With both Stevenson and Jones being outrighted, bad day to be an ex-LSU Tiger…
Peart of the game
Victor Robles is toast at the plate, really should be a defensive piece off the bench at most if not simply released.
